“I think I was very focused the whole match,” Lajovic said. “This was the key today, not to make the little mistakes.”
Lajovic will then face Borna Coric of Croatia in the second round.
Medvedev’s loss wasn’t alone being upset in Rotterdam, with third-seeded Alexander Zverev also took his loss as well to Alexander Bublik by 7-5, 6-3.
Bublik now bound towards a second-round meeting with Tommy Paul.
Zverev, coming off a quarterfinal loss to Djokovic in Australia, went a break up in each set against Bublik but each time was then broken twice himself.
Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray’s tournament run ended in a second-round loss to fourth-seeded Andrey Rublev, who won 7-5, 6-2. Murray hasn’t got past the second round of an ATP event since reaching the third-round in Cincinnati in August.
No seeded players remain in the top half of the Rotterdam draw after Alejandro Davidovich Fokina knocked out fifth-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut 6-2, 7-6 (3) in an all-Spanish match. Medvedev, Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime were all in that half of the draw but none qualified into the second round.
Sixth-seeded David Goffin only needed just over an hour to beat Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4, 6-0. He’ll meet qualifier Jeremy Chardy in the second round.
